If you feel like you've reached your limit of "Let it Go" covers and parody videos, I'm right there with you. Now that the Disney animated film is finally out on DVD/Blu-ray, it seems like it's time to set the Oscar winning song aside and enjoy it in its original form as Elsa belts it out from her icy mountain castle. But before you do that, if there's one final "Let it Go" cover you need to hear, it's Brian Hull's. The man delivers a rendition of the song by impersonating 21 different Disney characters and it's pretty fantastic, particularly if you're a big Disney fan.
Het gets warmed up with some Pirates of the Caribbean, then drops an octave or two to impersonate Scar from The Lion King. From there, it's Monsters Inc, because Mike Wazowski! For the most part, he sticks to the lyrics as they are, though Up's Dug had to work a "Squirrel!" in there. Scuttle's squawking verse is hilarious. And the hissing S's in Kaa's verse was a pretty great add-on, as is Pooh's uncertainty.
It's well worth noting Hull's intentions on this cover. The description of the video, which went live last week and has already racked up over six million views, notes his appreciation for Disney magic...
With so many covers of Let it Go coming out, people may forget the original Disney magic that this song has, so what better way to preserve that magic with other Disney and Pixar characters singing the song! So enjoy this Disney and Pixar Mashup! Performer is me, Brian Hull and the audio is recorded and produced by Seth O'Neal
I'm a believer in Disney magic. Yes, I bought into that years ago, raised on the classics and fortunate enough to grow up during the Little Mermaid/Beauty and the Beast/Aladdin/Lion King era when Disney animation made its grand comeback with top quality movies.
Incorporating the voices and accents of beloved characters like Winnie the Pooh, Tigger -- laugh included! -- and then bringing it home with Mickey and Minnie makes this particular version of "Let it Go" seem as much a love letter to Disney as it is to Frozen. As a Disney fan, it may very well be my favorite cover to date.
For those who haven't grown tired of "Let it Go" covers, you might want to try this one -- though you may have heard it already. It's already broken 27 million views:
And then there's this one, which is sung by
